Autoplay podcast episodes to stop

Hi,

I am very new to Deezer and only signed up for listening to podcasts. I usually only listen when in bed, for falling asleep but there’s one thing that is annoying the *** out of me but I can’t find the settings to resolve this. I only want the app to play to the episode I have selected but Deezer plays ALL episodes that are available from one show and keeps playing and playing and playing and I get woken up every time hours after I fell asleep, but some random episode. Where can I set that the app stops playing once an episode ends??? #Android

Thanks,

J

Hi there @JanineG 

Thank you for reaching out to us. There isn't an option to do this at the moment, but we're working on improving our podcasts' experience and adding a podcast episode to a playlist has been one of the topics mentioned. So thank you for your feedback, I'll be passing it on to the right team here and in the meantime, please have a look at our ideas forum here :wink:

+1 for this feature. You should be able to choose whether a podcast is autocued. At the moment having to set a timer for around the length of the episode but it's annoying when I forget and wake up in the middle of the night with a sleep podcast still playing.

Great feedback @cazzzac we're still new with these features so it's important to have your opinion :relaxed:

Yeah I think for most podcasts really, the default behaviour shouldn’t be to autoplay. Whereas for music you probably want that feature most of the time. Ideally there’d be a toggle button for Shows and Music where you can choose to autoplay or just play a single track (either on-page or in the settings).

Gotcha @cazzzac it makes sense, really. Perhaps it's even in our scope for this year.

In any case, I'll let our devs know about this :wink:
